I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum section for a general "Who is from Michigan?" question!
Although, I'd LOVE to host a get-together! We're living on the lake (Huron) and the Labs absolutely love it, so it'd be awesome to have more of them over to play!
I'm currently in Cheboygan (near the Mackinaw Bridge to the U.P) having moved here from Indiana. I'm also a bit intimidated by the weather, but Chloe and Cole are not...they're loving the extra snow!
Visit the Ultimate Air Dogs forum and say hello.... they are based out of Michigan. You will find plenty of dog loving/lab owners on that board. Ultimate Air Dogs is now affiliated with the United Kennel Club-UKC, MI.
Barb and Rock ;D
I'm from down state, Rochester Hills, to be exact. We're about 30 minutes north on I-75 from Detroit.
I grew up on Burt Lake.. my aunt has a cottage there and we used to go up there at least a few times a summer and winter. I don't think I've ever been to Cheboygan, but I'm pretty familiar with Indian River, Alanson, Harbor Springs and Petoskey
Yay for all of us Michiganders! ;D I'm sure you have WAY more snow than we do!
There are a ton of Michigan people here actually. It'd probably be easier to gather in Lansing. We used to get together at a dog park in Wixom...but haven't done it in a year. It's time to do it again me thinks....once the weather gets better that is.

oooh yeah. lansing is a little over an hour from me.. not too bad!
are there any good dog parks in Lansing??
I know this is an older thread, but there is a nice dog park on Hawk Island State Park in Lansing. http://www.lansingdogparks.com/ There's a path going around a pond with a few beachy areas for easy access to the water. Most people are fairly good, depending on when you go. I usually try to avoid it on the weekends because it's super packed, but off peak times are good.
Otis - the most trusting dog on Earth.
Yeah - in a couple of weeks, when Champ is all healed from his snip! Maybe, sometime around Memorial Day weekend?Originally Posted by Dani

There is a BIG dog park, with dog beach, (aka [i]LAB LAKE[i]) in Lake Orion. It's a County Park, Orion Oaks. It's a good time...
I really want to get a Labfest going in MI.. check out my other post I made and let me know if anyone would be interested.. I sent a few of you PM's about it.
